Hazardous Work Zones: Implementing Occupational Safety II

Course Description

Construction is a high hazard industry that comprises a wide range of activities involving construction, alteration, and/or repair. Examples include residential construction, bridge erection, roadway paving, excavations, demolitions, and large scale painting jobs. Construction workers engage in many activities that may expose them to serious hazards, such as falling from rooftops, faulty ladders, unguarded stairs and scaffolds, and improperly designed egress routes. OSHA safety standards are designed to reduce on-the-job injuries; health standards to limit workers’ risk of developing occupational disease.

This three hour online video course is designed to assist those in the industry to identify, reduce, and eliminate construction-related hazards.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Name factors that pose a hazard to employees working in excavations, and identify how to reduce those hazards. 
  • Outline at least three procedures that must be followed in order to control and minimize on-the-job injuries.
  • Summarize “best practices” for proper handling, storage, use and disposal of hazardous materials.
  • Recognize the role of OSHA in the workplace and describe the causes of the most common workplace injuries.
